rupert murdoch who refused to comment. many fingers are pointing to rebecca brooks now a senior executive with murdoch's empire but at the time was the editor of news of the world. so far the murdochs are defending rebecca brooks job but this is far from over. >> when is the response of the media the paper going away after 168 years? >> reporter: it's a bombshell and a great sadness because it's tradition but a lot of speculation about what is to come. more arrests and certainly more resignations and a lot of interest how this will affect the murdoch business empire. i see the stock is down 4% of the parent company in new york this morning. one of their deals has now been delayed here in britain. >> a 12 million pound deal we will talk about in a minute. >>> eleanor goodman is from channel 14 in britain. good morning. >> good morning. >> how extraordinary move of this is for a paper around almost 170 years to all of a sudden just shut down like this? >> it is extraordinary. i was talking to a person earlier today like a pencil line on a boat. murdoch is
a $4,000 fine. >>> couple of positive reports this morning about jobs in america. here now jason brooks with kcbs and cbsmoneywatch.com. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. this is the kind of news we really want to see. hiring on the upswing. it fell off during the swing. a couple of reports show promise. the labor department says first time weekly unemployment claims fell by 14,000 this week to the lowest level in 7 weeks. we hope for a trend in the right direction. private payroll processor adp says 157,000 new jobs were added to the economy in june. that was more than double the expectation and a lot better than may with only 36,000 new jobs and a promising sign going into the monthly jobs report for tomorrow. jobs still really lagging in a key piece of the economy that needs to improve to show better growth overall for the economy. also a couple of decent reports for local retailers. san francisco-based gap saw 1% sales gain across its three chains a lot better than expected and a nice change of pace. they have been struggling. ross stores saw sales increase 5% that. too beat
responding to petty crimes but cops went when they were robbed. brooks says it was because there was a suspect at her scene. >> the level of response was based on the fact that there was a suspect in the area and they were coming out because there were still some information that was actionable upon. >> reporter: turns out our purse snatching victim got the same response as councilwoman brooks. officers were on the scene in two minutes flat all because they believed that the thief was still in the area. >> reporter: there is actually a city council charter provision that says the city council member can lose his or her job if they try and exercise influence over another employee or break the chain of command but again both councilmembers say they didn't do either of those things, they were just calling a friend for help when a situation happened. ken? >> well, nobody likes it when they break into your stuff and steals it. christin ayers in oakland, thank you. >>> big brother is watching your every move in oakland's fruitvale neighborhood. the city just installed the first
and it looks like unemployment lines are getting longer. >> with more on that here's jason brooks with kcbs and cbsmoneywatch.com. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. unfortunately, weekly unemployment claims surged higher last week up 10,000 to 418,000. this following a pretty big drop the week before which had sort of given us some optimism that perhaps the market was going to head the right way but this has been indicativity past three months to get a drop one week and then heading higher the next week after that. we have yet to see claims fall below 400,000 in the past three months. need to be below that point to indicate that job hiring is going under way in an ernest fashion. so that's a problem for the markets. a lot of earnings are out including a number from the silicon valley. intel reporting that it saw its profit increase 2% to $2.9 billion. its profit would have been higher if not for a couple of major purchases buying mcafee as well as infineon. and intel does say that it's seen an increase in shipped sales to pc makers selling their pcs toists with as well as an increase
seo paper. th d to the cameras as he headed out for dinner with rebekah brookes, his embattled british c.e.o. this is damage control by a man who shows well how to manage his message. but the phone hacking scandal has already cost him one of his most profitable papers. yesterday evening, staff leaving the "news of the world" for the last time put a brave face on the murdoch decision to shut it down. the "news of the world" was the best selling newspaper in britain. a cheeky blend of skin, scandal and gotcha journalism squarely aimed at british working people who enjoyed seeing the rich and the powerful taken down a peg or two. but not families touched by grief. the "news of the world" is under police investigation for hacking into voicemails belonging to relatives of fallen soldiers and a murdered teenager. journalists also hacked into the phones of celebrities who found out and sued. it was james, rupert murdoch's son and heir apparent, who authorized a reported million dollar out-of-court settlement to at least one of the hacking victims. this week, he admitted it was a mistake. >> i
to close down operations. yet today, owner rupert murdoch expressed "total support for rebekah brooks," the embattled executive who formerly edited the paper. south sudan became the newest nation trying to become the u.n.'s 193rd member following civil wars that left an estimated 1.5 million dead. holding most of the nation's oil reserve, continued tensions in the former sudan. dignitaries at the ceremonies were colin powell and u.n. envoy susan rice. a federal judge in new york city heard arguments in a lawsuit that challenges search procedures at the u.s. border. at issue the privacy of personal electronic devices and the plaintiff is an american citizen who says he has done nothing wrong. michelle miller has more. >> i've crossed the border dozens of times. >> pascal was on a train from montreal to new york last year when his travel history raised concerns at the u.s. border. >> i lived in jordan. i've traveled to lebanon. and i've also been to yemen. >> border agents searched his belongings, seized his laptop and ordered him to log on. >> next thing i know, my laptop is being peru
that he had bribed police. so far, rebecca brooks, a former editor turned senior executive, hasn't been investigated, even though she told a parliamentary committee that... >> we have paid the police for information in the past. >> reporter: now public opinion has turned sharply against the paper's owner, rupert murdoch, one of the world's most powerful media tycoons. he bought "the news of the world" back in 1969 and made it the cornerstone of an empire that now includes fox news and the "wall street journal." simon hoggart is a columnist for "the guardian." his newspaper has been investigating the scandal for years, and he says murdoch is facing an enormous backlash. >> it was fear of murdoch before a few days ago, now it's just unalloyed loathing for the guy. >> reporter: the murdochs moved fast to close down "the news of the world" this week, but it's much easier to stop the presses than to repair a reputation tainted by lying and deceit. authorities announced a short time ago that they now arrested a third person in this scandal, a 63-year-old man, although we don't know yet who he
brooks and london's police chief but contrition for the murdochs did not give way to admitting knowledge of the dirty tricks employed by those at their newspapers. both rupert and james defending the family legacy. >> it does not mean that i have any knowledge of anyone intentionally misleading me in the company. i don't. >> reporter: saying they simply didn't know what was happening. then theater moments early turned to farce. a protester from the public gallery tried to slam a foam pie into murdoch's face. he might have gotten closer had it not been for the swift response and powerful right hook of murdoch's wife. when the hearing resumed, a shirt sleeved murdoch seemed to gain the upper hand and the respect of his interrogator. >> i must say i it shows guts for you to be able to continue answering questions under the circumstances and a lengthy session. thank you for it. >> thank you. >> reporter: at times he appeared to be bemused and not being questioned by anyone but in the end a glimpse of the man who for decades ruled his empire and for now at least rmremains >> this terrible thi
